A Real Christmas Gift For A Dollar - 11/08/13

  As you head out in the next few weeks to pick up things on your Christmas shopping list, you will almost certainly take meals out you would normally take at home.  Let me suggest a few places where you can satisfy your hunger and someone else's at the same time.

  Dalts on White Bridge Road, Burger Up on 12th Avenue South and Noshville Deli locations are among more than two dozen Nashville eateries taking part in a program called Street Smart.  It invites patrons of participating restaurants to add a dollar to their bills to help feed Nashville's homeless.

  The program is an arm of Room In The Inn which sends people with no place else to go Nashville area churches to spend the night.  One hundred percent of the money raised by the Street Smart program goes to feed the homeless.  The kicker is it's only from November 29-th to December 31-st.  Last year, diners contributed nearly twelve thousand dollars. 

  For a complete list of the participating restaurants go to www.roomintheinn.org/streetsmart  It's just a dollar and every penny will be used to help feed the hungry right here in Nashville Please help spread the word.

MANNING RECORD - KEEP-AWAY

DENVER (AP) -- It was a game of keep-way -- with Peyton Manning's record-breaking football. Manning set the new mark in NFL career touchdown passes last night against the San Francisco 49ers. Manning's teammates had a little fun with him after throwing TD 509. When Manning went to get the ball, his fellow Broncos played keep-away. Manning jokes his teammates were picking on him. Manning finally did get the ball, but he didn't get to hold it very long. It's going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Manning threw another TD for a total of four, in the Broncos 42-17 victory at home.

TEEN CANDIDATE

DACONO, Colo. (AP) -- If Jory Coates wins a city council seat -- he'll have to toast his victory with soda pop. At 18, Coates is old enough to vote but not to drink. He's running for the Dacono, Colorado, City Council. He's a recent high school graduate and works in a pizzeria. He's funding his campaign with about 100 bucks he's made at his pizza job. Coates is using the money to buy signs and posters. But Coates isn't sure his future is in politics. He tells the Longmont Times-Call he also wants to study to become an emergency medical technician or a nurse.

BEE HOBBY

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Michele Boling says she has a healthy respect for boxes full of bugs. She better -- because Boling is an amateur beekeeper. Her hives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, produce honey and beeswax. She says in the two years since she got her first hive, beekeeping has moved from a hobby to a passion. She tells a local paper (Daily News), she sometimes wishes that people were more like bees. Boling says bees are never out for themselves but only for the good of the hive.
